WOWZER.... BRAVO to you Susan Boyle!!

Really, someone very dear to me sent this link to me this morning in an e-mail. It is regarding a lovely lady named Susan Boyle and she appeared on Britain's Got Talent. I must say it truly moved me to tears. This video just reflects the world and how we truly judge people by their looks... so sad really when I think about the initial reaction, but so thrilling to see the result of God's true beauty shining through so clearly. Make sure you watch it, it certainly is worth seeing the reaction on Simon's face before, during and after.... WAY TO GO SUSAN! Make sure you look at the words to the song too. ENJOY and I hope it moves you as well! What a wonderful way to start my morning!! Hats off to you!! You certainly are more then a super star Susan!! I am certainly in awe of you; your voice, confidance, humility, your humor and joy; your beauty!! (((BRAVO - Standing and applauding))) So now, go not only forth to dream your dream, but live it!

Here are the Lyrics:
I dreamed a dream from Les Miserables

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high
And life woth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving.

Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used
And wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung
No wine untasted.

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
As they turn your dream to shame.

And still
I dream he'll come to me
That we will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms
We cannot weather...

I had a dream my life would be
So different form this hell I'm living
so different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed
The dream I dreamed.

Thank you so much for sharing this video! I have never felt so uplifted. My mouth was open the minute she started singing and never closed until the end. What a valuable lesson this teaches. If you were here right now I'd give you a big hug for sharing this. It truly made my day. Best, Curt

Thank you for posting this video. A friend sent it to me this week in an email. It shows the best and the worst in people. The audience as well as the panel of judges were judging her before she ever opened her mouth to sing. I was thrilled when she began her song. She gave me goosebumps and a few tears too. I think we all can learn a lesson from her and her performance-the old saying never judge a book by its cover comes to mind!!! Way to go Susan!! I pray that this show leads you on to bigger and better thinks~
